Salmon with noodles in a green pesto sauce with pine nuts

Salmon is always delicious, even when canned. This is the only way you can take salmon with you on a cycling vacation. Here we use soft noodles. We make a sauce with green pesto and a shallot, some pine nutes and schredded dried basil for extra flavor.

Great food for after a day on the bike!
